It’s important to me to include a Breastfeeding Cover in my must have newborn essentials list. I nursed my previous two children and I intend on doing so again with my third. A cover provides me with peace of mind, comfort, and privacy when nursing my baby.
I’ve had it suggested to me to just use a blanket while feeding baby but that doesn’t always provide for the best results. A more active baby is likely to pull a blanket down, blankets aren’t as breathable, and it doesn’t leave me with peace that a nursing cover does. A blanket can so easily slip off exposing a private feeding moment leaving me exposed and embarrassed and my baby disturbed. There’s nothing worse than a distracted nursing baby!
I’m giving my full recommendation for the Breastfeeding Cover by Cozy Nursing. This cover is generous in size offering coverage for women of all shapes and sizes. It’s larger size also accommodates newborns through toddlers. I plan on nursing my child till two years old, as with my previous two, so I really appreciate the extra length and width.
The fabric is 100% cotton, soft, and quite breathable. There’s no over heating while this is worn which is important for both mom and baby. The neckline is wide and allows for eye contact between mother and baby. It’s easily adjustable before and while being worn with the d-rings. There are two pockets on the front of this cover which allow for storage of a cloth, pacifier, and so forth. The stitching is strong and I don’t see it unraveling or wearing out anytime soon.
The coloring is a heather gray. It’s not too dark or too light. Any stains are likely not to be seen easily. Care of this cover is a piece of cake. I simply just throw it in the wash with everything else and it comes out as good as new. When not in use, I place it back in the handy storage pouch which cinches closed. I can simply throw the pouch into the bottom of my stroller or into a diaper bag for when I need to use it again.
Overall, I am quite happy with this nursing cover and will most likely use it for my baby and pass it along when we are through to another Mom in need! Also another thing to brag about is the awesome price of just $12.95 on Amazon.com! It’s a real steal!
